Ever Wondered Who the Best NZ Broadband Provider is? Broadband Compare Award Winners Announced


Ever wondered who the best New Zealand Broadband provider is? Broadband Compare Award Winners announced.

The inaugural Broadband Compare Awards ceremony, held last night at The Sapphire Room in Auckland saw Slingshot walk away as the big winner. Slingshot took home three gongs on the evening with awards for Best Bundled Plan, Consumer NZ Broadband Provider of the Year and the Broadband Compare People’s Choice Award.

The awards, supported by Consumer NZ, New Zealand’s trusted source of independent consumer information, covered eleven different categories across the broadband sector including Best Fibre Provider, Best Rural Broadband Provider, Best Gaming Broadband Provider and Best Regional ISP.

More than 20 different internet providers made up the finalists across the various categories ranging from prominent and well-known brands through to smaller regional and specialist internet providers. Other winners on the night included Stuff Fibre, MyRepublic and NOW.

Commenting after the winners were announced, Gavin Male, Broadband Compare Managing Director enthused, "The Broadband Compare Awards have been a huge success. It is great to see some of the newer consumer brands coming to the forefront with different offerings, competitive pricing and innovative new ways of packaging their broadband products. Our panel of judges had a very tough task selecting the winners, as there are a wealth of different options out there for consumers and businesses. We urge everyone to take a couple of minutes to check their current broadband plan to ensure they are making the most of the advancements in technology and the changes in pricing. There are a lot of options out there people may be unaware of."
